Smooth Moves by Blitzburgh

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 121.72 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 163.94.
  • Did not start Vernon Davis, who scored 14.30 points and beat his projected point total by 822.6%, which was the highest percentage in the league.
  • Should've started Mason Crosby, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting K with 6.00 against a projected 7.47.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Ryan Fitzpatrick, who then scored below his 19.57-point projection with 14.42 points.
  • The 2.10 points scored by Greg Olsen was the lowest total in the matchup and 17.8% of his projected point total of 11.78, which was his lowest percentage of the season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Sterling Sharpe GB - WR 1993 vs. Tampa Bay 10 Catches, 147 yards, 4 touchdowns In his seven-year career with the Packers, Sharpe had plenty of big games, but none was better than his Week 8 effort against the Buccaneers in ’93.

In the midst of a season in which he would total a career-high 112 catches, Sharpe pulled in 10 passes against Tampa Bay, four of them culminating in the end zone. Those scores along with 147 receiving yards amounted to Sharpe’s best fantasy effort of his career, and the best fantasy tally by a WR in Week 8 since the AFL-NFL merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
